A substantial environmental incident, such as an accidental chemical release that could impact neighboring communities, requires an immediate reaction as well as a long-term plan to manage a myriad of issues including significant litigation. A company that responds thoughtfully and strategically is better positioned to face these challenges.

This issue is of concern to financial institutions because significant environmental releases and associated litigation may have a material adverse effect on the underlying company, including a potential adverse effect on that company’s ability to service existing loans or to meet other financial obligations.

Please join Mayer Brown partners Mark Ter Molen and Sarah Reynolds as they provide strategies on:

  • Preparing for a possible incident before it occurs
  • Handling the initial emergency response
  • Managing active investigations, legal issues, and litigation
